Seasidehippo Re today's RNS. Does anybody have any clues as to who the settlement of outstanding fees was made to? and for what service provided? While i appreciate the issue of 431,589 shares is small, for me this is like "a red rag to a bull" given what was discussed at the AGM regarding dilution. Why so secretive? Is cash flow so tight we couldn't pay this in cash? —- Great username! Yes, confirmed with APC that the issue of £26k in shares was to settle Stockdale fees. Reading between the lines, they are very supportive of the company and I’d envisage they preferred this option as it is probably advantageous in respect of tax liability. I may well be wrong on this count...last studied taxation 26yrs ago. Also, Stockdale are being acquired by Shore Capital shortly hence probably tying up the account before the change in ownership. Don’t think anything untoward re. cash. Hope this assists. Kind regards, GHF

Many thanks GHF. I note some loan notes were paid off last year, from what seems excess funds raised for an acquisition. Short term debt of 3.36m is I assume overdraft? So it appears to me the short term debt is an increasing overdraft balance, which is the main reason for the (low) 0.8 current ratio? I am far from an Accountant but imo the balance sheet does need some serious work. especially from the increasing debtors, although I accept that could be swayed by acquisitions last year (and before?). The debtor figure in 2017 did look unusually low though compared to surrounding years I for one hope they steer well clear of paying any dividend and concentrate on reducing debt.

I thought it unusual that he never bought any shares in the company!! Came across at the AGM as a very quiet personality. Let's wish him the best and move on!!

But keep things in perspective...when ever a CEO or FD resigns for what ever reason it is a standard good practise to give him/her good wishes with golden goodbyes if entitled...even if there was a conflict of interest/disagreements they are not going to tell you all...as both parties want to look good for their next projects...have you ever heard of board members within Plc casino markets saying glad the FD or the CEO is gone!!...good riddance...

Perhaps they already have a suitable replacement within Aspen who can simply step into the role and immediately save us £100K in salary?

GHF,So you must have been duly concerned about the departure ,Let's see what the results say in MayI have to say there many better investments than choosing this one I am not what percentage returns one hopes to achieve here, but dumping a larger holding is not easy with an illiquid share

APC - FD’s departure Good morning, I’ve grabbed a quick word with the APC team & came away reassured that there is nothing untoward surrounding Michael’s departure. It was simply put to me as a parting of the waves without any acrimony. They were at pains to confirm absolutely nothing else to be read into the change as today’s RNS implies & that Michael leaves with their best wishes for his future endeavours. During my call I was delighted to learn that the APC management are very pleased with trading in H1. They have alluded to a positive start to FY19 in 4 updates so far in FY19 (2 during Dec 18; 1 in Jan 19 & of course the AGM statement last month) & there was nothing during my call that indicated there had been any change to this positive start. Indeed one of quotes I’ve taken away from the call was that, “the business is in great shape!” I posted twice last month in relation to my impression of the business following the AGM (posts 1163 & 1175). As a reminder, APC grew earnings by +59% last year & are forecast to grow EPS by a further +34% this year, leaving the shares on a single digit PER. Hope this assists & saves any investors from being unduly worried over todays Board change. I’m certainly not 👍🏻 Kind regards, Gordon

hxxps://apcplc.com/news-posts/led-lighting-still-tops-list-of-energy-efficiency-technologies/ For those unaware EEVS is an APC Technology group company that is the UK's leading professional services provider for energy efficiency. A research partnership between EEVS and Bloomberg New Energy Finance, Energy Efficiency Trends has fast become the sector’s leading source of market intelligence. Published on Friday, Mar 8th, 2019 LED lighting still tops list of energy efficiency technologies deployed, says quarterly Trends report LED lighting and lighting controls were still the most popular technologies deployed in energy efficiency projects in Q4 2018, according to the latest commercial energy efficiency trends report published this week by EEVS and BloombergNEF. The quarterly analysis, which tracks trends in the commercial energy efficiency sector, reported that 65% or projects included lighting efficiency technologies and 52% of project included lighting controls. Said John Hatt, Contracts Director at APC Lighting: “This report echoes our own experience within the sector. Despite macro economic conditions, we are still seeing strong interest and commitment to LED lighting within new builds and lighting upgrades. As lighting technologies, including more energy efficient luminaires and smarter lighting controls, continue to deliver significant ROI and energy savings – they remain an obvious investment for companies looking to reduce energy costs and see a quick payback. The growth in lighting controls is very significant. Whilst current LED luminaries are typically 50% more efficient than the LEDs of 5 years ago, daylight sensors, presence detection and timed dimming can typically deliver a further 80% reduction in energy usage particularly within 24/7 settings of industrial buildings, warehouses, car parks and retail spaces – so it is no surprise that the report reflects the dominance of both LED and controls.”

Hi all, I've got more feedback from IR: "Dear Enrique, Thank you for your e-mail. We appreciate the reasoning behind your questions and can confirm that the vesting stages between a market cap of £9.1m and £40m are based on percentages of the growth in market cap with higher percentages available at the upper levels of market cap. Not all LTIPs have been allocated at this stage, but in any case the maximum dilution under all option schemes cannot exceed 15%. In fact in the data given in the accounts you can see that only 8.5% of dilution would occur at the maximum level. Also note that, If the target is reached, there is a staged vesting of the awards as shown in the note to the accounts: on 31 August 2020 (50%), 2021 (25%) and 2022 (25%), so dilution in any period is limited. Hopefully this allays your expressed concern about the example of issuing £3.3m worth of shares at £10m market cap. These awards accrue only if the EBITDA target is reached for the year ended 31 August 2020. You will appreciate that we cannot share this target figure with you as we are not able to publicise forward-looking figures of this nature. We hope this will help your understanding, but you will appreciate that we will not be able to go into any further detail on this question. Many thanks for your interest and support." I asked as Harrogate suggested and got some useful feedback. I still think IR should provide more details but it is what is. I won't bother IR again but I suggested they could add more details on the financial report this year. We will see if they do. Thanks GHF and Harrogate for your help. Regards, fibs

Good morning folks, Just a snippet from me in response to the share options & subscription of shares by the Chairman & CEO. Interesting to observe that the Chairman has taken his ENTIRE accrued fees in shares. Tony has never taken any cash from of the business SINCE APPOINTMENT IN FEB 2017 & in addition has invested about c.£250k in that time. Quite a vote of confidence in the company. In addition the CEO made a small subscription for shares in addition to his LTIP award. So - as I mentioned a few days ago - I feel the management of APC are completely aligned with shareholders. As a result of the share awards I see Roger Robinson has required to RNS this morning as his holding has fallen below the % threshold. No shares sold...simply announcing due to the increased number of shares in issue. Kind regards GHF
